Maryland Commit Diamond Stone McDonald's All American Practice Highlights
Throughout the 2014-2015 season, the Maryland Terrapins relied heavily on perimeter production to put themselves in a winning situation game to game. When you have standout guards like freshman stud Melo Trimble, athletic senior guard Dez Wells and the promising Jake Layman to carry the load, you're in a good position to win your fair share of games. That's exactly what Maryland did, finishing with a 27-6 record in their first season in the Big Ten before falling to West Virginia in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Standout guard play is a plus no doubt, although if you look at the four remaining teams left in the NCAA Tournament (Wisconsin, Michigan State, Kentucky, Duke), they not only have standout guards, they also have quality bigs bringing balance to the various four teams. That's something the Terps lacked consistently throughout last season....not anymore. Last friday, the 7th ranked player in the 2015 class 6'10 250 pound center Diamond Stone committed to the Maryland Terps, bringing a much needed inside presence to College Park. With a variety of moves on the block, the ability to run the floor, sneaky athleticism and a sound work ethic, look for Stone to come in and be a force right away for the Terps next season. Take a look at Stone showing off the entire repertoire at the McDonalds All American practice.
